Coconut oil is an age-old tried and tested remedy for hair growth and shine, because of its amazing nutrient content. Coconut oil contains capric acid, lauric acid, and caprylic acid, all of which help in the healthy maintenance of hair. This oil also helps your scalp remain free of dandruff by keeping it properly moisturized.
Neem is widely known for its many beneficial properties, associated with its leaves, seeds, flowers, and fruit.
